I have repaired at least fifty Swarovski Crystal unicorns over the years. It is very common to break the horn off. This time the crystal horn broke off and the pieces were lost. I have make a lot of horns ram , bull, dragon,but this was my first unicorn horn. I did not get it on the first try as seen in the picture.
After making the new horn I etched the glass . Then I attached it to the head of the Unicorn.
Red on clear glass decanter came in with a broken neck.
The break was along one of the cuts
The Steuben crystal beaver had a broken tail. It was sent to me for repair. It wasn’t a very clean break so I ground and polished the chipped glass . I had to reshape the tail also.

The lamp fell and two pieces of beveled glass were broken. The front lens was a diameter and I used a piece of old mirror because of the color. The newer glass has a very dark green color to the edge. The antique glass has a yellow not the green edge. I have repaired many Rail Road lights over the years. I used cast iron grinding mill to rough in the bevel.
I cut the antique glass and rough in the bevel.
